Many thanks to everyone who's supported Guest so far. It was amazing to see so many people at the launch - I honestly wasn't expecting such a good reception, but in the end we had almost 70 people there, a great crowd. Thank you so much for all of your support and you were a great crowd.

If you have read the book, may I please ask you to leave me an Amazon or Goodreads review? Cheers!

I'll also be doing the following events over the next few months:

Tuesday 19th September, Leeds - Fictions of Every Kind: Family, along with Emily Devane, at Wharf Chambers. Anybody can come along to this event, although you do have to sign up to become a member of Wharf Chambers beforehand, which costs £1 and you can do it online at Further details on the Fictions of Every Kind events page.

Saturday 30th September, Wakefield - Wakefield Lit Fest event at the Hepworth Gallery with Claire Fisher and June Taylor, 3.00.

Monday 9th October, Ilkley - Un/Forced Rhubarb Anthology launch at Ilkley Literature Festival Fringe, Ilkley Playhouse - Lounge, 9.15pm (hour-long event.)

Wednesday 25th October, Shipley, Bradford - Rhubarb 15 at the Triangle in Shipley.

Friday 3rd November, Manchester - National Creative Writing Graduate Fair, hosted by Comma Press. I'll be appearing as part of a panel event at this great fair. Reduced price places are available for writers who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend. See the Facebook page for more information.

Monday 6th November, Bolton Library - in conversation with Simon Holloway of Bolton University Creative Writing MA. This is a cheap (or free, I'm not sure) event with wine, starting from 6.00.

Tuesday 14th November, Chapel FM, Leeds - I'll be on Peter Spafforth's radio show talking about Guest.

Thursday 16th November, Housmans Bookshop, London N19DX - Pages of Protest with Abondance Matanda (Know Your Place), Holly Pester (Protest: Comma Press), & Sam Berkson (Influx Press). Entry £3, redeemable against any book purchase. Starts 7pm. 

I'm also taking part in Script Yorkshire's Adaptation Challenge, on September 18th at Basement Bar, City Screen Cinema, York. This is a sight-unseen 'script in hand' reading of a short story I've adapted for stage (i.e. I've done the adapting, but it isn't one of my own short stories!) It promises to be a great night so please do come along.
